Why do senior centers need insurance?

With seniors, even a minor incident can lead to serious injury. An elderly person’s slip-and-fall accident or an accusation of negligence could financially devastate your facility. Senior center insurance covers the costs of lawsuits and accidents that might otherwise put you out of business.
